*Join Run4Life@IFAT / The virtuous circle of integrated nutrient recovery
The H2020 Run4Life project is organising a Stakeholder Engagement Workshop as a side event at the IFAT trade fair in Munich, on May 17th. Everyone with an interest in nutrient recovery is invited to take part in this inspiring event. The programme includes a wide variety of speakers ensuring that it will be a very interesting morning. Please visit http://run4life-project.eu/run4life-ifat to have a look at the programme, and register your attendance.
Domestic wastewater is an important carrier of resources, especially water and nutrients – which are hardly recovered in the current centralised wastewater management systems. Run4Life demonstrates an alternative strategy for improving nutrient recovery, based on a decentralised treatment of segregated toilet wastewater, other domestic wastewaters and organic kitchen waste. Innovative technologies are combined to achieve this goal. At 4 sites in Europe, for the first time nutrients will be recovered from domestic waste streams of several 100 dwellings. In collaboration with fertilizer producers, the resulting products will be characterised and the possibilities for their agricultural application will be determined. End users and other stakeholders are a fundamental part of this evaluation to achieve institutional, legal and social acceptance.
